This is what we did:
|Look at all those cute shoes!|
|The table at the entry way. The buckets our filled with our little gifts for the girls at the end.|
|The back wall.|
Our program consisted of our Beehive Counselor, giving a talk & then calling up the 3 girls that will be joining us this year. She gave the girls all white roses & told them how excited we are they they will be joining us.
We had "A Day in the Shoes of " where we introduced our upcoming beehives, & told everyone how about a day in their shoes & got to know them a little better.
I then gave a talk. It was the "Different Shoes of Personal Progress." I had in our displays different shoes that helped represent the different values, and told a few stores to go along with it. Here were the types of shoes I used & close to the order that I went in.
Good Works: Snow Boots (I told of personal story of a snow shoveling service project)
Integrity: My husband's dress shoes (A personal story of my Grandfather)
Choice & Accountability: Running Shoes (Talked about choices we make every day)
Knowledge: My baby's cowboy boots (how from baby to adults we are here to gain
Individual Worth: Camouflage covered High Heels, (Everyone, is unique some qualities may
be the same, but we are all different with our own worth & purpose)
Divine Nature: Glittered Princess Shoes (You are a princess, born of Royal birth a Daughter
of a King)
Faith: I used strips of fabric & told this story of the woman leaving Prussia from Pres. Monson.
Virtue: Temple Slippers (Because the whole goal of Personal Progress is to build enough faith,
& to help you get to the Temple.)
We then had a talk given by our Bishop & our YW President said a few things & we ended the night.
|Of course food is always important.|
|These were are little gift to the girls. The "Stand in Holy Places" CD by Jenny Phillips, & a bottle of cute fingernail polish. I came up with the saying & our lovely YW President put them all together. Thanks Robyn.|
however to be done with it & able to think & focus on something else for awhile.
Oh yeah. . . I did find some really cute sayings about shoes, such as this one:
There are lot more, you can go check out my PINTEREST board, if you want to see my favorites. We never ended up using them, but they are all still cute! So . . I hope maybe that can give you ideas . . . I will be sharing later more ideas later on things we have done in YW or with personal progress. So for now have a an amazing day!
